    A quick summary makes it sound schlocky, but William & Catherine is pretty slick schlock.

    This portrait of Prince William's courtship of Kate Middleton is better than April's plucky Lifetime movie. [29 Aug 2011, p.36]

    The story of Prince William and Kate Middleton offers way too much of a Hallmark moment for the channel not to weigh in with a sentimental, heartwarming version of the year's favorite romance.

    The sad truth--or the happy one--is that the courtship of "Wills" and Kate was a comparatively event-free affair, and director and co-writer Linda Yellen struggles to present it as anything else.

    The drama is swamped by the saccharine cliches.

    In this case, being respectful comes pretty close to donning a straightjacket. Fortunately, there's enough interest in the couple to provide a built-in audience for this modestly scaled (shot in Bucharest) exercise.

    Where the two leads are fledgling performers at the start of the careers, the actors playing their older relations have no such excuses for appearing herein.

    All in all, A Royal Romance offers some OK acting of a dull story.
